Annual Howard M. Haynes Award Received by the THPRD Visioning Task Force

Washington County’s Committee for Community Involvement (CCI) has selected the Tualatin Hills Parks & Recreation District’s (THPRD) Visioning Task Force to receive the 2020 Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award. The annual award celebrates the work of Washington County community members who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in engaging members of their community in civic affairs.

The THPRD Visioning Task Force (VTF) was chosen for their extensive community engagement effort to form a vision for the future of the park district that reflects the diverse needs and interests of district residents.

According to the CCI, “What really stands out about their work was not only the short timeline and enormous amount of work these dedicated volunteers were able to complete, but the way in which they did it, their overall commitment to authentic engagement, the results they were able to achieve, and the impact this work will have on the park district and the 250,000 residents served by THPRD. The resulting Vision Action Plan speaks volumes to this devoted effort.”
